You can either use a boot loader like system commander and such, or you can just make 2 partitions

Install win 98 onto the one, then install XP onto the other, and the XP bootloader should detect 98 and add it to your bootlist at startup :)

if one was to install 98 second, then boot using the xp cd and select repair, would that also work?

Goatman, good rule of thumb to follow in multi-booting -- *oldest OS first (avoids a lot of extra work/problems that way). Put 98 on your c:\ partition, and run XP setup while in 98 and install it to another partition.

* you can put 95 OR 98 on your primary partition, 2k next partition, ME next, and finally XP -- all will work from the same drive using that simple precept - oldest first.
